We are Changing Lives

At Changing Lives we believe that everyone deserves a safe home, a rewarding job and a life free from addiction or abuse. We also believe that, given the right support, anyone can change their life for the better. By focusing on their strengths, potential and opportunities, we help over 14,000 people overcome their problems and live safe, successful, independent lives each year.

We have around 100 projects in England staffed by 600 dedicated staff. We help people experiencing homelessness, domestic violence, addiction, long-term unemployment and more, to make positive change – for good.

  Our Christmas Campaign 2020

Donating to Changing Lives is a simple way to make a big difference to your local community this Christmas.

Since March, we’ve helped almost 10,000 people facing a variety of challenges such as homelessness and addiction. All of these challenges have been made more difficult because of the pandemic – and they don’t go away just because it’s Christmas.

There are lots of ways to support Changing Lives this Christmas, from taking part in fundraising activities, to donating food and other items our projects urgently need.
